    Groomsmens gifts

    Im getting married shortly and needed some good or differant ideas for Groomsmens gifts, And also what to write on them if anything at all. I figured this would be a good use of the community here and im sure there is plenty of experience here. What did you do/get when you got married or were in a wedding??? I dont want to do the usual flask or pocket watch. I appreciate any thoughts or ideas. Thank you.
    Dennis.

    Clone-a-willy (do a google search). Its an unusual gift that keeps giving to the lady in their life.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    I heard the "I survived Benncools trip" T-shirts are really the rage this year...

    Good topic!

    I'm an elected Best Man for an August wedding and I suppose it would be interesting the hear this one. I was a Best Man years ago as well as usher/groomsmen. We received mostly personal toiletries and grooming kits, etc. It would be nice to see what goes on today. Up here one of our major pharmacies carry a line of "Life's Experiences" products.

    If you can figure out what they're interested in you can gear it towards them, like a flight simulator or romantic wine tasting with their grilfriend. Might be something like this in your area.

    I have been in several weddings over the last 15 years.

    The best gift I ever received was when my brother got married to his now ex-wife drug whore...err...well, that's a different topic.

    Anyhow, he bought all of the groomsmen a camp chair with foot rest. I use it every weekend during the summer. It's a very practical gift that didn't find itself collecting dust with the other groomsmen gifts.



    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    I got a Leatherman tool when I was Best Man. I still think I'm the best.

    Get them something that they can give you back after the divorce....things like a small TV for that one bedroom apartment you will be living in, maybe a nice Walmart set of dishes, some silverware, maybe a coffee maker too....you know, things you can use!






    Sorry dude had to.....the last wedding I was in I got a very nice set of grilling tools, tongs and fork with thermometer, basting brush......it is all stainless steel!! Thought that was a pretty cool gift....use it everytime I BBQ!!!
    I need a new signature.....

    I got a swiss army knife engraved, but a leatherman would be much better. Personally, a gift certif to a local sportbar w/ an engraved coin/medallion as a remembrance would have worked well....jmo

    I have a swiss army knife I use, and a classic silver beer stein that I use for special occasions. Both are engraved and were very nice gifts.
    I was in a couple other wedding parties in my early 20's but I don't remember what I got.
    Trust me, I know what I'm doing.
